I recently met with the entrepreneur who's trying to transform the way we share, discover and enjoy web video. Reece Pacheco, CEO of Shelby.tv and his team can take all the videos you've been linking to on facebook and twitter and pull them all together into a custom channel for you. They're making discovery and sharing a lot easier, more personalized and of course- enjoyable.
Reece also has a really unique background having traveled the world and worked in Hollywood for a while after his Brown University years and also having been a professional lacrosse player before diving into tech entrepreneurship! He also founded TeamHomeField with Joe Yevoli before launching Shelby.tv which is still going strong. Reece founded Shelby with his good friend Dan Spinosa who he met while they were students at Brown.
Everyone who knows him knows that Reece is an entrepreneur who is all about teamwork, hustle and making it happen- hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
